The Diagnostic Center, Central California has provided assessment and trainings in the area of language and literacy disabilities for over 35 years. The DCC Dyslexia Forums were prompted by the creation and adoption of the California Department of Education’s Dyslexia Guidelines (PDF). Each DCC Dyslexia Forum provides a "low to no cost" avenue for educators, parents and community members to access research or share innovations related to dyslexia, literacy assessment, instruction and intervention.
